Save Yourself Sometime To Go Smoothies

A few weeks ago I posted some pictures on Instagram of to go smoothies I whipped up and a lot of people have been asking me about them so I thought why not write a blog post? I haven’t written a cooking related post in a while so this was a great excuse to get back to it. I have had a lot of early days lately so I thought about experimenting with frozen homemade smoothies. I got some [...]

Reader Q+A with Little Sprouts Kitchen

Hello, I’m Kimberly from Little Sprouts Kitchen! I live in sunny, San Diego, California. I moved to the west coast almost six years ago from West Virginia (Go Mountaineers!). I originally moved out here for work, but have found a reignited passion in cooking. When I moved, I completely changed up my lifestyle. Nutrition and exercise became pillars of my daily life. I always had a passion [...]

Loaded White Chicken Chili

I came across this recipe about a week ago on Pinterest and it looked delicious! I immediately started thinking about ingredients I could add to make it my own. Only a portion of these ingredients were in the original recipe. If you have read my cooking posts in the past you know I don’t normally measure anything out and just go with taste, however I did end up having specific measurements for [...]

So Simple Turkey Meatballs

(Originally posted December 14, 2014) Recently I decided to start eating ground turkey instead of ground beef because it’s much healthier. Even though when I first tasted ground turkey I didn’t care for it, I’ve discovered that over the past few years I must have developed a taste for it because now I think it’s delicious! The other day I saw a picture of spaghetti and meatballs and ever [...]

Experiment: Cauliflower Pizza Crust

(Originally posted August 23, 2014) Outcome first time around Over the past few weeks I have been experimenting with making Cauliflower Pizza Crust (low carb). It definitely takes some experimenting to get it right. The first time around I forgot to put the egg in and the crust fell apart (it was still good enough to eat as a snack). My friend and I came out with two semi-successful crusts that [...]

Garlic Roasted Chicken + Potatoes + Veggies

(Originally posted June 24, 2014) Tonight I thawed out some chicken thigh quarters and was looking through the fridge at what I had. I came up with a new chicken + veggie/potato  + marinade combination that I really liked and wanted to share with all of you. It would probably be a good idea to cook the vegetables and potatoes in a separate dish than the chicken, I found that the oil getting [...]

Mexican Pizza With A Twist

(Originally posted June 18, 2014) A few days ago I was in the midst of one of my meatless days and was in search of something to eat for dinner. I opened the fridge and grabbed some random stuff and low and behold it turned out to be a really delicious combination and has now become one of my favorite go to recipes for meatless days. I have eaten this “Mexican Pizza With A Twist” everyday [...]

“Living Lite” Meatless Days

(Originally posted June 18, 2014) About a year ago I decided I was going to have two meatless days a week (most weeks it ends up being more). I have been sticking to the program pretty well. Which days a week end up being meatless are normally a toss up depending on where I’m going and doing that week, it really doesn’t matter to me as long as at least two days end up meatless. This plan [...]

Spice Up Your Egg Salad Sandwich

(Originally posted April 2, 2014) I don’t know about you, but egg salad sandwiches are one of my favorite go to lunches. I grew up with the simple egg salad of hard boiled eggs and Mayonaise, but a few years ago I decided I’d start spicing it up and trying new things. AT this point I have a pretty standard list of ingredients I like to add in, but as always you can experiment with things you [...]

Fun Burrito and More…

(Originally posted March 5, 2014) A few nights ago I could of sworn there was some tomato soup in the drawer, went to make it and low and behold, no tomato soup. I found myself, as I so often do not knowing what to cook. When I saw a can of black beans (ding, ding, ding, a lightbulb went off in my head). This is a recipe my Mom showed me years ago and I have always used it as quick go to meal [...]
